Find great benefit in rum,
And, in gratitude for nips,
Bring fair winds to troubled ships.

While bloom the bloodless lily and warm rose

That will nip with a bitter breath
The sweet green buds, till their bloom be lost
In a shadow like that of death.

The rain has drench'd thee, all night long;
The nipping frost thy bosom froze;
And still, the yewtree-shades among,
I heard thee sigh thy artless woes;
I heard thee, till the day-star shone
In darkness weep—and weep alone!

As a consequence we conclude that in an NIP theory types over ﬁnite sets are uniformly deﬁnable (UDTFS).
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
In the next section we consider an implication of the (p, k)-theorem for forking in NIP theories.
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
However nfcp implies stability, so one has to come up with some generalization of it that is useful in unstable NIP theories.
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
On the one hand, we complement the result in [CS10] by showing that naming a small indiscernible sequence of arbitrary order type is bounded and preserves NIP.
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
Can anything be said on the positive side? Pillay [Pil11] had established: let M be NIP, A ⊆ M be deﬁnable with rosy induced structure.
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
We also remark that in NIP theories, there are arbitrary large models with “few” types over them (i.e. such that |S(M)| ≤ |M||T | ).
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
Recall that a formula φ(x, y) is NIP if there are no (at )t∈ω and (bs )s⊆ω such that φ(at , bs ) ⇔ t ∈ s.
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
It was observed early on by Laskowski that φ(x, y) is NIP if and only if it has ﬁnite VC dimension, if and only if it has ﬁnite VC co-dimension [Las92].
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
Fact 3. [Shelah/Sauer] The fol lowing are equivalent: (1) φ(x, y) is NIP. (2) There are k, d ∈ ω such that for al l ﬁnite A, |Sφ (A)| ≤ d · |A|k .
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
We recall the following result about existence of honest deﬁnitions for externally deﬁnable sets in NIP theories established in [CS10].
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
Fact 8. [Honest deﬁnition] Let T be NIP and let M be a model of T and A ⊆ M any subset.
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
Comparing Fact 12 and Fact 3 naturally leads to the following conjecture of Laskowski: assume that φ(x, y) is NIP, then it satisﬁes UDTFS.
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
An immediate corollary of Theorem 11 is that if the whole T is NIP, then every formula satisﬁes UDTFS.
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
The previous example shows that the same result cannot hold in a general NIP theory.
Externally definable sets and dependent pairs II
However, a general suﬃcient condition for the boundedness of an expansion by a predicate for NIP theories is missing.
